Ok... This is an cold call one. Kind of. It was set up through an associate of mine. It actually took him 2 months of trying to get me to email the owner of the company. By then, my associate had talked me up enough that they had been waiting for it. The interview as a couple of hours long. I however had issue with the mail server getting emails from the hiring manager. Still do on occasion. I was really looking for more info of what to study than a job at the time.
I've done some editing.
I was told to contact you by MY_ASSOCIATE. I'm a regular at LOCAL_SECURITY_GROUP, and currently looking to further my career. ASSOCIATE suggested that you would be a good person to talk to. He has spoken very highly of your company REDACTED_COMPANY.
I have a background in networking, firewalls, some wireless networking, and Linux administration. I have done some security auditing, mostly searches through logs for company policy violation. When I was contracted to LARGE_COMPANY, part of my duties was to do wireless audits of the FACILITIES.
I'm currently preparing to take Offensive Security's WiFU class. I'm waiting on hardware to arrive prior to starting the course. I wrote a book review of Hacking for Dummies, 3rd edition, published by the Ethical Hacker's network in April. The review is viewable at http://www.ethicalhacker.net/content/view/301/2/
I'm wondering if it would be possible to do lunch in the near future. I'd like to go over my skills and resume with you, get your opinion and if you know of any companies that may be interested in me.
Another one, again edited. Also lead to interviews.
